Counselor in Training and Counselor in Training 2

The Counselor in Training (CIT) program is a hands-on leadership program designed for high school students looking to gain valuable professional experience working with children in a predominantly outdoor setting, and allow teens to be positive role models for younger campers.  CITs assist camp counselors with camp activities, actively lead games and activities with campers, and create a welcoming atmosphere for all the children at camp.

The CIT program has built in education sessions, where participants learn about leadership and youth-facing mentoring skills, as well as team building, and practical application time working embedded in a group of campers.  CITs will also be given the opportunity to spend time in each of the program specialist areas, such as Drama, or Arts and Crafts.   The CITs are under the mentorship of the CIT Director and lead counselors who provide insightful feedback to further the CIT’s job and career interests.

CIT 1 candidates must be at least 15 years old, and entering grade 9 or higher in fall 2023.

CIT 2 candidates must apply to the Camp Chris Director via our email –  Candidates must have taken part in our CIT 1 program, or  be able to show a history of similar leadership experience.  CIT2 candidates must be entering grade 10 in fall 2023.

Join us for Camp Open house on Saturday June 10, 2023.  Our whole team will be on campus from 1-3pm to show you around, and answer any questions you may have.
